When I was a relative newomer to gardening in my retirement, this book opened my eyes to the wonderfully varied heirloom tomatoes hardly mentioned in most commercial catalogs. Dr. Male's enthusiasm and expertise come through in every chapter and she provides just enough detail on growing seedlings to ensure success without becoming boring. The best part of the book is the guide to 100 selected varieties, of many different shapes, sizes and habits. There are also chapters on tomato origins, selecting and growing varieties, saving seeds, and creating your own heirlooms.
